SPRING/SUMMER TOURNAMENT TEAMS
Mooresy Hockey Development finds that more and more often, players are incorporating some spring and summer hockey development during the off-season. Without a doubt, any athlete will gain athletic literacy through diverse sports experiences. However, as the level of skill and talent increases, year after year, players are looking for ways to take or keep the "leg up" on their competitors.
Spring/Summer tournaments can be a valuable way to gain competitive experience while building on hockey-specific skills. When players are removed from their typical setting (team), they are given the opportunity to experience different coaching philosophies, and team cultures. Playing with teammates that one might normally find as an opponent builds on a player's adaptability and, in turn, makes them a more intelligent hockey player.
When building our teams, we first look at who will be on the bench. The number one quality that we look for in the head coach is that their primary goal is to increase the level of competitiveness within each player. Off-season tournaments are VERY competitive and any invited players MUST exhibit this trait in spades. However, they must equally show that they have a "team first" mentality.
With all of this in mind, we find that each team's roster varies slightly at each event and we take much pride that our rosters include players from various minor hockey centres from the Alliance Hockey League, the GTHL as well as the OMHA
ST. PATS WITH PRIDE
Our 2009 AA team will be competing in their 4th season of summer tournaments and is managed by Marjolaine Trottier. Last year they won the coveted KING OF THE RINGS event and are looking to repeat this year!
We are excited to get underway with our brand new 2012 team. This group will bring in talent from across Northumberland County and look to bring home a ring in August as well.
Let's get started on this amazingly fun, summer pastime!!
Our 2013 AA tourney team will be led by Jake Taylor, a veteran in leadership both on and off the ice. We are proud to have him as our flagship Fall/Winter Camp Head Instructor as well. Jake will be bringing select players from surrounding centres to compete in this year's summer tournaments.
Our newly formed 2014 tourney team's roster will include players out of Northumberland County and Quinte West. Led by Jamie Andrews, we are excited to see this group of dedicated players take up competitive summer tournaments with ST. PAT'S
Our ST PAT'S fall/winter program has an amazing group of 2016 players to help develop and so we were excited to ask them to represent their ST PATS PRIDE with us this summer. It took no convincing to get them ready for competitive tournaments.
Are you looking for an experienced program to support your spring/summer tournament team?
Drop us a line and let's discuss how we can make this happen.
